You can choose to keep your guests entertained in a variety of ways; we can arrange to have gaming tables on board if you would like to host your own floating casino night or we can source you a professional DJ with optional karaoke if you just want to let your hair down.

Alternatively, our band list comprises anything from Jazz to Swing, Country to Rock ‘n’ Roll. We will be happy to recommend a live band to suit your event. Take a look at our Band List.

We can dress the boat however you wish; helium balloons, floral displays, bunting or even ‘Just Married’ life rings and banners. If you want to have a Pirate Party we will source the decorations for you. Or if you supply your own we will happily dress the boat for you ready for your special event.
